ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Toucans, based in tropical Seattle, have been playing Pan around the Pacific Northwest for over 10 years, and there's no end in sight. Their high-energy rhythms and eclectic yet ever tasteful musical sensibilities will get your body moving and your spirit soaring!

The Toucans are proud to present their newest full-length album, Steel Drums: Old & New.

Invented in Trinidad in the late 1930's, the Steel Drum led a musical revolution which carried it around the world and into the Pacific Northwest.

Now, the first steel drum band to originate in this area brings you a retrospective of the early days of Pan, the great songs of the Caribbean, and a choice selection of all-time favorites!

Featuring such Toucan Classics as Brazil and Jump In The Line, this 60-minute album also contains many great calypsos from the Forties and Fifties. And that's just the "Old" side!

The "New" side of the album is chock-full of more great music, from Van Morrison to Harry Belafonte, from Henry Mancini to King Henry the Eighth. It just doesn't get any better than this, Toucan Fans!
